So in 2016, I decided to set myself a challenge - tell the story of my year in Haiku. For those that don't remember, Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry with 3 lines and a 5-7-5 syllable pattern. It generally involves nature, and a sharp contrast/unexpected statement in the last line.
Here's some of the Haiku that made it into the letter, which was posted this week. Fingers crossed the family don't think I've lost my marbles.
About the Christmas season in general:
Hot sticky weather
Westfield carparks overfilled
About my furkids:
Naughty puppy digs
Old dog relaxes in shade
How soon is dinner?
As I said in the letter: there is no plan for Hubby and I to give up our day jobs in 2017 to write poetry. It sounds so simple. yet it isn't. (Read: I'm not very good at it)
Do you like haiku? Does anyone want to comment, using haiku? I'd love to see them.
